1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup butter
In a large mixing bowl combine oats, coconut,dates/fruit and nuts.
In a small sauce pan, melt butter over medium-low heat.
Add corn syrup, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon & honey; stir to combine.
Increase heat to medium& stir occasionally.
Meanwhile spray a 13x9 baking pan with non-stick spray.
Measure out a sheet of foil large enough to cover pan.
spray foil with non-stick spray& set aside.
Cook corn syrup mixture until it comes to a full boil; let boil for one minute.
Remove from heat& pour over oat mixture.
Stir to combine (mixture will be very stiff).
Transfer mixture into prepared pan.
Cover with prepared foil & PRESS FIRMLY.
You want the mixture to be as compact as possible.
I've used a small cutting board to help press the mixture firmly& evenly (don't be afraid to stand on it!). If you don't press firmly enough it won't hold together well.
When mixture is as firm & even as you would like, remove foil & let mixture cool.
Cut into bars. take about half the pan and break it up into a bowl.
to the bowl add
6 oz chocolate chips- bittersweet is nice
2 cups raisins
6 oz coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
mix well and enjoy!
Hope you like it!
